We live in East Memphis and drive down to the river to eat at Tugs. Very comfortable setting. We enjoying watching the boats on the river. Food is good for the price. You can’t go wrong by going there to eat and relax. We enjoy watching the sunset while down there

This Resturant has one of the best views that the city could offer. The food and service cancel all of that out. The food never tastes like it is made from scratch and always seems it come out of a microwave. Salads are average Drinks seem never to be cold enough. Employees are not overly friendly. With the name Tugs one would think the inside decor would match the name but far from it. Such a shame the place is not unique with the location to dream for. Parking an issue at times

We were in town for Rhodes orientation and had a relative recommend this place. It was Thursday night and it was more crowded than I anticipated. We had a nice low humidity evening and enjoyed the patio and was seated immediately. We enjoyed the sunset on the big muddy. Let
Me just say, our service was great and I actually think this was the most bang for our buck we experienced the bar was well
Stocked and had numerous beer options. This guy named Matt came by and introduced himself and was genuinely concerned about how our experience was. He made us feel extremely welcome with classic Memphis southern hospitality. We will be back.

Had another great dinner tonight at a reasonable price at Tugs! This is my usual experience. And Chris K provided outstanding service on the patio. This place has received some negative press from some overbearing visitors recently, and I believe their comments have been unfair to this restaurant and it’s crew. Remember, management will always fail to address your concerns if you fail to elevate them when the service staff are unable to accommodate your request or do not meet your expectations. This is a great little local spot with a good price point and I’m happy they’re here when I’m hungry! I always come for the patio and evening views.

They do daily dinner specials as well as happy hour 3-7. Tonight I had the special: chicken fried pork chop, mashed potatoes, and Mac ‘n cheese with an added side of broccoli. Great dinner, friendly attentive service, and of course a great atmosphere out on the patio at sunset!
